Alas! No enigmatic Gabriel in "The Ghost Tree" this the second in the Libby Butler series, but there is the charming and hunky Scotsman Kie Armstrong. (I have to say the author Sara Bain does like her men *wink wink*) The book first sets out in rural Scotland in 1695 when Andrew Mackie and his family are being terrorised by the 'Rerrick Parish Poltergeist'. Hundreds of years later MacAoidh (Kie) Armstrong moves into a smallholding built on the grounds of the old haunted land. Has the legend of t [...]

Those of you who have followed my reviews for some time may remember me going on about how much I loved The Sleeping Warrior last year. It was without doubt one of my top reads of 2014. Well, Sara Bain has done it again with The Ghost Tree – her second novel, and one of my top reads of 2015. I’m now chomping at the bit for the finale of the trilogy.So what’s it about?Five years after the death of his wife, MacAoidh Armstrong moves into a smallholding in southern Scotland with the intention [...]

This is the second part of a trilogy of books and I have not read the first book in the series, but I understand Prendergast and Libby are recurring characters and Kie is an important new character in this book as he buys the property situated on The Ring, which is the focus of alleged paranormal activity that is affecting Kie and anyone who stays in his home. Despite initial resistance to accept something paranormal might be happening Kie does open his mind to allow investigation by parapsycolo [...]

Brilliant! Loved this book. It was well-written, had a hugely entertaining central character and genuinely gave me goosebumps. Should come with a warning that says - should only be read during the hours of daylight!

I picked up 'The Ghost Tree' by Sara Bain from a Twitter recommendation and I am so glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed an engrossing story that merges the realms of the paranormal and romance seamlessly.The tale is about the haunting of a house in rural Scotland, recently purchased by the hunky MacAoidh Armstrong. Although maybe a little unbelievably dreamy in looks and personality, MacAoigh (Kie for short) is a likeable enough protagonist, his never-say-die attitude and bravery really pull the st [...]

Wow read this book in just 2 sittings! Had to put it down at 12.30 this morning as it was scaring me too much. I've read modern spooky stories & not many of them work but this one hit every button. Nice funny bits & just enough sexy bits to make the characters believable. Will be checking out Sara's other book now

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).I haven't read the prequel to this book, but I didn't feel I needed to in order to get a good feel for the storyline and the characters.One of the interesting aspects to this book, I felt, was the mix of attitudes towards the supposed haunting. I did question the wisdom as to why Kie was insisting on staying in the house after everything that had happened he was an intriguing character, but I felt t [...]

The story begins with a recounting of events that took place in 1695, bringing continuity to the story that would keep you reading until the end.MacAoidh (pronounced MacKie) Armstrong brought property far from his family in Southern Scotland to make a new beginning after his wife’s death, but from the start unexplained things start happening that makes him sometimes doubt his sanity - and legend says that it happens because the Ghost Tree is dead. A break-in but nothings stolen, unexplained fi [...]

* I'd like to thank Sara Bain the author and The Book Club on FB for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*My thoughts : Where to start with this book? From page one I was totally hooked, and when I had to put it down (as apparently sleep is very important) I couldn't wait to pick it back up again. Set in Southern Scotland we meet MacAiodh ( Mackie), he's moved into a smallholding ready to start a new life but things don't go quite as smoothly as planned. Mackie has a p [...]

I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.Well, where to start?! By simply saying I loved it and didn't want it to end!! This is a brilliantly constructed novel with several story threads that intertwine beautifully to create a really gripping read. The characters have a wonderful depth that left me feeling that I could empathise with them on a very real level with the action and intensity starting early in the novel. I wondered whether it had peaked too soon but I needn [...]

FULL DISCLOSURE: Had The Ghost Tree not been produced by Urbane Publications, the publishing company who publish my next novel in September, I would never have bought this book . and it would have been a huge loss for me. I'm mightily relieved to be able to honestly say, without bias or prejudice, that The Ghost Tree is entertaining, terrifying, funny, romantic, and thought-provoking. I'm no believer in ghosts or poltergeists, but this book not only gave me pause, I was actually quite scared on [...]

I really enjoyed this book, I couldn't put it down. I was pleased that it continued the story of a couple of her characters from her first book. I'm not sure if I liked Libby to start with when I first encountered her in Sara's first book "The Sleeping Warrior" but I really like the way she is portrayed, she is a believable character, flawed with a temper, strong, and impulsive. You don't need to read the first book to enjoy this one but I do recommend it, it's a good story. I used to live in Du [...]

I was lucky enough to get this book to review from THE Book Club and I was really glad I did. It is a bit different to the crime novels I usually read which made a pleasant change- not that everything in the story is pleasant; far from it! Sara Bain creates a spooky scary atmosphere and I don't think this is one to read whilst alone in an old house! The story moves at a good pace and with interesting characters. I admit I sometimes found Libby's comments juvenile and unbelievably rude coming fro [...]

I really enjoyed this book and came to love the characters in it. This is the second of a series and I read this first by accident!In some places it meandered and the main character who finds himself haunted prevaracated a little too much and I got a little impatient with him but overall I wanted to see what happened with every page turned, and I do find Libby makes me smile throughout the book - a very good character to have come up with by the author - though she does seem always to get involv [...]

MacAoidh Armstrong moves to a remote Scottish smallholding which has been haunted off and on from 1695 He doesn't believe in ghosts but soon discovers that something is haunting the place. He teams up with local lawyer Libby Butler to get to grips with events. What is real? Is it a hoax by some clever locals who don't want him living there or something more sinister? This is an easy read with a lot of action I found it to be well written with a sensible and believable approach to the unquiet spi [...]

GoodNormally I don't review on because I don't like to be told how long my review must be but this just looked so lonely with out any reviews. It was a good book. I love the cover and the main characters. The paranormal aspect was good and had an interesting plot and story line. The romance left a little to be desired and the scientific debates went over my head some times but overall was a good story. I didn't realize there is a book previous to this one with Libby in it and I might have enjoy [...]

I was lucky enough to receive this book for review from THE book club. I love scary books do this is right up my alley.It starts with a haunting in a farm house in the highlands and the book takes you through a story of modern hauntings and how this affects the person who brought the house. With thrilling twists and lots of paranormal activity this book has it all.

Not a book you want to read in the very early hours of the night when you have a pack of coyotes yelping in your yardlol. It's a great book, don't get me wrong, but parts of it scared me half way out of my mindlol. Guess that's the basic of making this one of the very best books I have read so far this year!*Received for an honest review*

Took a whileIt took many attempts to get into this story, but it could be just me. Its a good strong story with great plot twists, but I found some bits totally unnecessary and boring. I skipped many pages but still found myself running with the story. The writer is eloquent and has written it very well. A ghost story? Maybe not entirely but romance ? Yes definitely.

Thanks to The Book Club for an ARC of this book. I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't find it too scary but the story line was good and made me want to keep reading. All the characters were believable and I particularly warmed to the two main ones with the banter and love interest.
